September Marine Fish of the month: Foxface

Aquahome Foxface - Rabbit Fish

Also known as Rabbitfish can grow up to 53cm in the wild but most species kept in aquariums usually reach around between 25 and 30cm. All have large dark eyes and small, rabbit like mouths which gives them their name. Most species have bright colours or a complex pattern.

They eat mainly a variety of fresh vegetable based diet and algae. Care must be taken during maintenance and cleaning as these fish are often easily spooked and will use their venomous spines in defence. Their venom is not usually life-threatening to adult humans but causes severe pain.
